What Is Expected

A  L  O  H  A !

“ Would you like to know your future?
If your answer is yes, think again. . .
enjoy, endure, survive 
each moment 
as it comes to you
 in its proper 
sequence -- a surprise.” 
                                            Vera Nazarian











" Most people want 
to be circled by safety, 
not by the unexpected. 
The unexpected can 
take you out. 
But 
the unexpected can also 
take you over and 
change your life. 
Put a heart 
in your body 
where a stone 
used to be.” 
                   Ron Hall







“The expected 
always happens” 
                    Disraeli

I have observed
that the expected
usually happens,
even when
opportunities
for better outcomes
tremble on the brink
of  becoming.

So focused
usually, on
 what we fear;
The still,
present voice
of Possibility
or Gift
we do not
hear.

What If

happened?

Don't fear
a let down.

Enjoy rather
dreams that will
paint your face
in place
of a frown.

Then YOU
will be
one of the 
Special Ones
spreading it 
around.

I think
You already
ARE!

Fondly,

It is the negative unexpecteds that drive me crazy.

Thank you for this post. It touched me so much and that no matter what challenges I face for today and the coming days, I'd just have to trust and let go.

The future? What will be, will be.
I would rather not know.
Now is gift enough.
